Default WELCOME 53GUNR from LaPorte County, Indiana!

Nice range of eras there. I was lucky to find two local creamtops (a qt. and a half pint) in a roadside ditch a long time ago and still haven't dug any since. The aqua corker in the top right of the picture looks like the oldest bottle there.

Here are some cleaned up.
The milk is a Chestnut Farms from Chevy Chase Dairy in Wash DC.

The frosted is unique in that the top is a bit off-center, like a blown. Probably a perfume.

The small one with embossing says Thomas & Thompson Reliable Druggist, Balt MD. I researched adn this one was made between 1908 - 1920.

The glass stopper is cool also, never found one of those before.

Did you get the "safe milk for babies" bottle? I'm up near Tyson's and got a Chestnut Farms too!

I added some paint pen work to help display it

No, but I have seen plenty of shards from those. I am down in Burke, right by the FFX county Pkwy.

Your Thomas & Thompson drug bottle is what's called a "sluglpate" design. The maker (Whitall-Tatum Glass Co. in this case) had a standard design that they would change the name plate depending on who the bottle was being made for. Here's a similar local I have in my collection:
